Fire Research at the Science–Policy–Practitioner Interface
A section of Fire (ISSN 2571-6255).
The main aim of the Section, Fire Research at the Science–Policy–Practitioner Interface, is to highlight research seeking to assess operational approaches to wildland fire management. We welcome submissions from indigenous, state, and agency land management in addition to academic and non-governmental organizations. All areas of wildland fire science management are welcome, including, but not limited to, wildland fire policy and planning, fuel treatments, habitat assessments, fire hazard and risk reduction, post-fire hydrology, ecological restoration, smoke-reduction approaches, experiences of community-based fire management, etc. One of the goals of this Section is to facilitate the sharing of information between wildland fire managers and scientists, through interacting with a series of international wildland fire science information networks.
The Southern Rockies Fire Science Network
|International Science Reserve|
|Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Information Exchange|
Additional networks are welcome to participate in this Section. The Section welcomes all forms of papers but is particularly interested in Case Reports describing significant fire events and governmental or community-based fire management applications.
